Do I Need To Buy A New Bread Machine?

Recommended Posts

Guest Mari

I have a Breadman bread machine that I got as a wedding gift about five years ago. I think the last time I used it was about five years ago!! Do I need to buy a new one, now that I am gluten-free? Do I need a new insert, or can I just re-wash the insert and stick with the same machine? I want to start baking my own bread, since it seems that everyone is saying the bread is much better when it's homemade.

If there is nothing stuck to it and you was it thoroughly then it is probably ok and you can keep that for it. Otherwise I think you should get a new one or something...just if there is something stuck on it you can't get off don't use that one.

If there's stuff stuck to the pan that you can't get clean, you don't necessarily have to get a whole new machine - that can be expensive - but at least contact the company to get a new bread pan.

I could not afford to buy a new one and got really desperate for some decent bread. I used some Dawn PowerDissolve on my bread pan and inserts and washed them vigorously. I then let them soak overnight and washed them again. I have not had any problems.

These are not mixes for a bread machine but here are some good breads

Kinnikinnick-donuts,breads, etc

Foods by George-english muffins(plain and cinnamon)

Cybros-rice rolls

Chebe(their bread mixes make a good pizza crust too)

Sorry I can't help with the bread machine mixes, I have not tried baking my own gluten free bread in a bread machine.

Some of the gluten free cook books give very good recipes for bread machines. The cookbooks don't cost very much and they are extremely useful. I found most of mine in my local bookstore.

The gluten free gourmet: Cooks Fast and Healthy by Better Hagman has a lot of gluten free bread machine recipes. She has all different kinds of bread like lunch bread, cranberry-pecan, cinnamon-raisin-nut, seame bean, orange bean...

Yes cookbooks by Bette Hagman are good but you have to have time for the recipes because it takes a while. I have a few cookbooks and am very happy with the results I have had from those recipes(haven't tried the bread ones yet though)

There are several good posts on this site about bread machines and different gluten-free mixes to use in them. Once you get the hang of this, it is not a big deal...you just put the ingredients in the machine and turn it on.

There is a posting about milling your own grains that contains my personal favorite recipe for mixing up a bulk amount of bread flour and then just taking out the 2 1/2 cups you need each time you bake. Some people prefer the bean flour mixes, others the rice or alternative ones. It seems to be a matter of personal taste. The results may tend to vary in looks according to your altitude, humidity, temp of ingredients, etc. so you may have to adjust any recipe a couple of times.
